What inspired you to create your garden?
We created this habitat on the University of Minnesota St. Paul campus as a community connections gardens for students and teachers to utilize and enjoy. We hope that the garden will be used as a teaching tool by the University and that passers-by will enjoy the pollinators and other wildlife that use the garden (along with the native plants).
